Fugitives Exhibition - Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec

April 18, 2019

The MNBAQ presents the Fugitives! exhibition, designed and orchestrated by historian and hip-hop artist Webster. Nine illustrators create the faces of 13 slaves described in advertisements published in La Gazette de Québec and La Gazette de Montréal. The portraits are integrated into the gallery of portraits of city dignitaries presented in the 350 Years of Artistic Practices in Québec exhibition, thus restoring a human face to individuals who were dehumanized by slavery.

The exhibition is presented in conjunction with the Culture Visuelle et Mémoire de l’esclavage au Québec conference.

Exhibition Dates: Until 10th May 2019

Exhibition Hours: Open daily 10am–5pm, Wednesday until 9pm

Venue: MNBAQ, 179 Grande Allée Ouest, Québec, QC G1R 2H1, Canada
